Blackhawks Training Camp

Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Remember when the Chicago Blackhawks were knocked out of last season's Stanley Cup playoffs? Remember how sad that was? Well, wipe those tears and bust out that jersey: the team opens training camp today, and you can experience it yourself at the Blackhawks Training Camp Festival at the United Center. Take in a live practice and scrimmage, then hang out with former players, enjoy some live music, and have a little food and drink.

Sometimes parents just have to get some things off their chests. Thank goodness for Louder Than a Mom, a live-lit series featuring "depressing, shocking, miserable, vulgar, hilarious" family stories, which you can check out tonight at Martyrs.'

Tonight German electronic-music provocateur Felix Kubin stops by Schubas. Peter Margasak writes, "[Zemsta Plutona (ZickZack)] opens with an absurd, mechanical-sounding cover of the Lou Christie falsetto classic 'Lightnin' Strikes,' and the 12 tracks of subversive art-pop that follow incorporate alien funk, faux swing, Communist-era youth songs, elegant sequenced electronics a la vintage Kraftwerk, and the traditional German radio plays called Hörspiele."
